George E. Andrews received his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1964 and since then has been a fixture at The Pennsylvania State University. He has devoted much of his mathematical career to the study of various kinds of combinatorial mathematics, especially the theory

 Mission of the ICA • The ICA was established in 1990 by Ralph Stanton for the purpose of promoting the development of combinatorics and of encouraging publications and conferences in combinatorics and its applications. • The three most important functions of the ICA are: • publishing the Bulletin of the ICA • supporting conferences, and • awarding medals and honorary fellowships AGM will be during:  Thanks to the BICA crew:  Editors in chief • Marco BURATTI, Universit√† degli Studi di Perugia (Italy) • Donald KREHER, Michigan Technological University (USA) • Ortrud OELLERMANN, University of Winnipeg (Canada) • Tran VAN TRUNG, Universit√§t Duisburg-Essen (Germany) Editorial Board • Darryn BRYANT, University of Queensland (Australia) • Peter DUKES, University of Victoria (Canada) • Tao FENG, Zhejiang University (China) • Genniani GE, School of Mathematical Sciences Capital Normal University (Beijing) • Catherine GREENHILL, University of New South Wales (Australia) • Ronald GOULD, Emory Un

Conference announcement: FQ15 June 19-23, 2023 Aubervilliers, France

 https://org.uib.no/selmer/fq15/ International Conference on Finite Fields and Their Applications 2023 (Fq15) The conference  Fq15  will take place at Campus Condorcet, Aubervilliers, France (on line 12 of the Paris metro, at one station from the limit of Paris) during the week of June 19-23, 2023. Paris 8 University is a founding member of the  Campus Condorcet Paris-Aubervilliers . Fq15  will continue the 30-year-old tradition of a forum for researchers on the mathematical aspects of finite fields and their applications. Previous editions of the  Fq  conference could be found  here . Scientific Scope Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Theory: structure of finite fields, primitive elements, normal bases, polynomials, number-theoretic aspects of finite fields, character sums, function fields, planar functions and almost perfect nonlinear functions, equations over finite fields. Computation: algorithms and complexity, polynomial factorization, decomposition, and irreduc
